The heart of the medieval centre Paseo del Borne has many narrow alleyways perfect for exploring on foot. The cafes here are very inviting and a good view is had of the cathedral. The cathedral is a magnificent Gothic building constructed between the fourteenth and the nineteenth centuries. There are a large number of beautiful historic buildings in Palma that are now housing museums.

 

Ciudad Jardin Nightlife

As Ciudad Jardin is mainly a residential, rather than a tourist area, nightlife is fairly quiet. It is a relaxed resort where entertainment is mainly hotel based with no all-night venues. If livelier evenings are wanted, take a taxi to Palma where the choice of bars, pubs and clubs is great.

 

Ciudad Jardin Shopping

Being little more than a residential suburb of the city, Ciudad Jardin has limited shopping. This of course matters little as the capital, Palma, is on your doorstep with its wealth of specialist stores and fashion boutiques. The Mercal Artesanal is a craft market in Palma which is open each day from ten until two. It is a lively place that attracts street entertainers. On Saturday mornings the Rastro flea market, also in Palma, is the place to scour for bargains. Popular purchases include local pottery and glass, leather goods, embroidered linens, basketry and jewellery.

 

Ciudad Jardin Eating

While the eateries of Ciudad Jardin serve mainly traditional food, being so close to Palma your choice of menu is vast. If you are new to the flavours of Spain, order tapas and you'll receive a variety of tasty, bite sized morsels. They are useful if you wish to stave off hunger during the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner. Local wines are as pleasing to the pocket as they are to the palate. Children are always welcome customers and their taste and portion sizes are usually accommodated.
